PUBG fans who enjoyed playing the Codename: Savage map on the Closed Experimental Server the last time it was available have another opportunity to play the new map. Savage launched again on the experimental server last night at 9 PM ET. The map will be available to play until Wednesday, April 18. Just as before you will need a beta key to access the server and try the map this time around. You can still register for beta keys here, but they are not guaranteed to be given to all who want one. If you had a beta key last time, it will still work for this round of testing. The Savage map has been... Read more...
Normally when you think about ransomware you think about something clearly malicious such as Petya and others. You could get your files back if infected with Petya, but the hackers wanted $300 in bitcoin to do it. A new kind of ransomware, however, is making the rounds and this variant is based on the game PUBG (Player Unknown's Battlegrounds), of all things. PUBG is a battle royale style game that is played online in large multiplayer formats, and all this PUBG Ransomware wants you to do is play the game for an hour. Not so bad, right? Well, it is still ransomware. The ransomware... Read more...

Battle royale shooters are extremely popular right now with PUBG and Fortnite leading the charge. With the booming popularity of this type of game, it will come as no surprise that a new game is stepping into the arena looking to make a name for itself. The game is called Radical Heights and it is from Boss Key Productions. The game is clearly trying to cash in on the nostalgia that is so popular right now for all things 1980s. Any child of the '80s will remember the music, video game arcades, and the awesome movies; and this game has a very '80s look to it. You can ride BMX bikes around the map... Read more...
When PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds first arrived last year, the game knew what it wanted to be from the get-go, and fans latched on fast. As of the time of writing, the game has thus far seen a peak of 2.26 million players on Steam today, dwarfing the #2 entry, Dota 2, with its 700K peak. Naturally, player interest is obviously going to wane over time if things are not shaken up too much, so PUBG's developers have been hard at work giving players more ways to play. Last month, the game's developer introduced Events, where on regular occasion, special modes will become available that will let players... Read more...
PUBG Corp has been surprisingly quiet amid so many games hitting mobile devices, PC, and consoles that focus on very similar Battle Royale modes that it made so popular. So far all that PUBG Corp has done is rail against Epic Games' Fortnite for conflict of interest. That has changed with PUBG Corp. filing suit against a couple mobile games for iOS devices that were published by NetEase. The two games named in the suit are Rules of Survival and Knives Out. The suit was filed in the Northern California U.S. District Court. Both NetEase games have up to 100 players parachuting onto an island.... Read more...
PUBG gamers have a new map to look forward to that is in testing right now. That new PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds map is called Codename: Savage and it is notably different in setting and size than other maps available for the game. The Savage map is much smaller than other maps measuring in at 4km x 4km compared to the 8km x 8 km size of other maps in the game. It's also set in a tropical jungle location. PlayerUnknown himself, Brendan Greene, has said that the smaller map will give gamers a "much more intense and faster paced Battle Royale experience." The test of the map is running on a server...

Last Friday mobile gamers got a surprise when PUBG Mobile launched in Canada. At the time the game launched in The Great White North, the only way for U.S. gamers to partake in the fun was to change their region and download the game. PUBG Mobile has now officially landed in the U.S. and the game is available on both Android and iOS platforms. The game is said to be an accurate and faithful reproduction of gameplay currently available on PC and console systems, and promises high-quality graphics thanks to Unreal Engine 4 along with HD audio. Perhaps the best news about PUBG Mobile is that...

Gamers in the Great White North got a surprise this week as without warning and with no fanfare, PUBG Mobile landed on the Google Play store in the country. This launch highlights the promise that the developer made to get the game on all major platforms. The game is an officially licensed mobile version and the soft launch is viewed as an early release to allow gamers to grab the game and beat on it for stability before a presumed larger rollout. PUBG did the same thing when it launched in early access form on Steam and stayed there for a long time before hitting an official release. Canada isn’t... Read more...
It's inevitable that popular online games seem to bring out the worst in people. Gamers must endure foul-mouthed tweens/teenagers that lob annoying insults and throngs of loathsome players that look to quickly rise through the ranks using as many tricks and cheats as possible. PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) is no different, and it has its fair share of cheaters that ruin the experience for everyone else. Given its immense popularity, the sheer number of cheaters is staggering. According to BattlEye, which is a software program that takes aim at cheater, over 1 million players were banned...

It's a sad fact of life that where there are large gaming communities, there is also a large number of folks who'd like to game those communities. In the wildly successful PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds or PUGB for short, cheating is unfortunately rampant, to the point where you don't need to devote much time to playing before spotting extremely peculiar behavior. As of the time of writing, PUBG currently has 2.5 million players battling it out for that delicious chicken dinner, so it's understandable to a point that cheating is going to exist. However, it also means that a lot more needs to... Read more...
PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds took the gaming industry by storm with its addicting battle royal game play, attracting gamers in droves. Unfortunately, there have been some annoying issues, both on the performance side (bugs have been a constant problem) and in terms of cheaters ruining the fun for everyone else. The latter is bound to happen when a game is as popular as PUBG. However, the developer isn't ignoring the issue—PUBG Corp is bringing the ban hammer down hard on over 100,000 players. "We recently discovered a new pattern of cheats in action. This week, we performed a thorough gameplay... Read more...
The mega-popular PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, aka PUBG, is finally here in full release form. With its time in the Steam Early Access easy-bake oven complete, the inspiring battle royal FPS game is now ready for mass retail consumption with an impressive new map, new weapons, vehicles and lots more. Back in September we had a blast running, gunning and dying quite a bit, to show you how the game had integrated NVIDIA’s Shadowplay Highlight’s custom replay features. Now we're giving this masterpiece of mayhem the formal treatment with its own gameplay and performance review. ... Read more...
Bluehole struck gold with PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, the massively popular survival shooter that recently made gaming history by notching more than 3 million concurrent players on Steam. The game has been such a raging success that the developers were spun off into their own company, PUBG Corp, led by CEO Chang-han Kim. While it be tempting to just ride out PUBG's success by focusing on its current course, Kim has bigger plans—he wants to see PUBG launched on every platform. That most notably includes the PlayStation 4, where PUBG has not yet manifested. It could also include the Nintendo... Read more...
